Monday Night Football open thread: Lions vs. Bears

Cary Edmondson-US PRESSWIRE

We take a look at the Monday Night Football matchup between the Lions and Bears, and open a thread for discussion.

Week 7 wraps up tonight with the Lions and Bears squaring off on Monday Night Football. The Bears are looking to maintain their half game lead on the Vikings, while the Lions are trying to climb back into the division race. A Lions upset would move them 1/2 game back of the Packers and really tighten up the NFC North race.

This will be an interesting one to watch for 49ers fans. The 49ers beat the Lions earlier this season at home, and will host the Bears next month on Monday Night Football. The NFC has a host of team bunched up in the middle of the pack, and it will be interesting to see if anybody pulls away aside from the Falcons.

Given how the NFC South has looked, the Falcons would seem likely to run away with things in terms of winning the division. The top two seeds however are up for grabs. The Falcons are in good shape to claim it, but there is enough time left in the race for the playoff byes that this is far from finished. Go Lions? Or go Bears?
